Solution Overview & Benefits

The WATERisLIFE Straw is a small, portable filtration device that provides pure, clean drinking water whenever it is immersed into a water source (just like a normal straw).

When used, the WATERisLIFE Straw filters out waterborne diseases which account for over 6,500 deaths every day – 5,000 of those being children. The Straw is proven to be effective against waterborne diseases such as typhoid, cholera, dysentery, guinea worm and diarrhea, removing particles as small as fifteen microns.

Each straw is sponsored at $10 per unit.
